Everywhere i go
Everywhere i go

The album will consist more of various Ugandan artistes and McKenzie recruited Baru of BaruBeats, Aethan & Samurae for it’s production and this combination gets this much anticipated Album a master Piece.
Among the many reasons you don’t have to miss this album, one is the fact of transition that McKenzie has for our ears with all the earned experience  through out his stay in this game.

This is one of the those rare hip-hop projects that undoubtedly no one should even think about missing , because probably if you take time listening to almost all the already released tracks like Winner’s Circle and Everywhere we go Rude boy mix, am sure you can’t stay the same. McKenzie is celebrating 10 years in the radio and the hip-hop industry put together and so this project will be a decade long celebration, as well as a way of celebrating Ugandan hip-hop journey.
Despite the fact that at times you may not find McKenzie rapping on some if not all tracks, he actually uses different artistes on different tracks to send his message through Censorship and experience which makes his projects worthy. I personally believe in his works and efforts, he does a project and real gives it his whole. it Keep you ears ready.

The Ugandan Jay-Z

Posted on Updated on

Reading the title of this post, might make you Tamale Mirundi trying to cope up asking yourself who the hell is Ugandan Jay-Z. no worries, you just need to scroll down.
image

Commonly referred to as “The Ugandan Jay-Z” ,St. Nelly-Sade real names “Nsubuga Nelson”, is a Ugandan Lugaflow rapper, storyteller and extraordinary lyricist.
Introduced by the Hip Hop Canvas album 2009 and 2010 to the music scene as he narrates in his “Nzijukira” song, paving way for more open opportunities which later helped him have prescences on WAPI, End of the Weak Uganda, Spoken Truth and Mic Stand Hip Hop night, as well as having performances on both national and international stages like the  Bayimba International Festival of the Arts, Uganda Hip Hop Summit, as well as performances in Arusha Tanzania as well as various regions all over east Africa.
He is an ambassador of the End of the Weak International Hip Hop Festival.

Nelly-Sade started serious rapping in 2002 under the Hip-Hop Gangstarz group which later had to break up, though for his case he did not put his tools down.
He then joined the “Bavubuka All Starz” foundation along with a few of his peers, with whom later emerged from the foundation to form a group known as the “Luga Flow Army” which is still in running till now.With hit singles like “Tubale”, “Nzijukira”,
“Kakuubidde wa” and “Nva Ntinda” “Neighbour (kankuwaneko)”, Love story, “Nina Plan”, You and I, “ebbaluwa” among other he has proved to the industry that is one to stay.

St Nellysade Kakubiddewa

St Nelly Sade is one who sits his fans on a mat to articulate and share his deepest thoughts and emotional stories through diverse sounds that are characterized by snares and kick drums.
Think about st nellysade and you will get a clear definition of what luga flow is all about. He feeds LugaFlow with simplicity, passion and love through his well organized lyrics, content, nice flow on extremely interesting beats, tapping every corner of his culture.
If he was doing his raps in english, you would definitely be calling him “the Ugandan Jay-Z”. He has die-hard fans that would not spend a day without listening to one of his tracks, evidenced by the way people purchase his works and the feedback he receives.

Two years back, St Nelly Sade curved a tunnel of evolution for himself from being an ordinary underground emcee and to an established mainstream rapper. He has created a level of lyricism, flow, artistry and wordplay which he takes from his debut album to his new album leaving him with no choice but only to prove his sheer talent and credibility on the mainstream hip-hop arena as well as better his highly rated debut album.

Stories of Elevation Album

Having released his debut album “The translation (Okutaputa)” in 2013 which was the first hip-hop album to sell out album copies, he has a new album the sophomore Omulondo N’engero (Stories of elevation) which is also doing good.

He has also collaborated with the veteran Lyrical G, keko, Moth, Navio, Ruyonga, nadujja among others and also featured on the UG Cypher 1.
And has also had several nominations like the Teeniez Hottest Hip hop song in Buzz
Teens awards in 2014 and Best Luga flow artist in the raising star awards

VERONICA’S WISH, A Love story that will grab souls and change lives. Premieres on 17th November

Posted on Updated on

To crave and to have are as like as a thing and its shadow. For when does a berry break upon the tongue as sweetly as when one longs to taste it, and when is the taste refracted into so many hues and savors of ripeness and earth, and when do our senses know any thing so utterly as when we lack it? And here again, for to wish for a hand on one’s hair is all but to feel it. So whatever we may lose, very craving gives it back to us again. All we crave for are Hollywood-like real acting scenes, those unbelievable sets and camera angles, those kind of stories we own, the eye gluing catchy scenes, the moments and a lot more, all we wish for is a movie with a story that walks and talks to the crowd. Sometimes you hardly can get all you wish for but get what gets you in comfort. Ladies and Gentlemen here is VERONICA’S WISH.

With an amazing, life changing inspiration story, VERONICA’S WISH talks about Michael and Veronica who happily live their soulmate life, engaged to marry but their journey takes a drastic turn when Veronica eventually gets hit by a mysterious illness days away from her wedding. In prospect of uncertain time, Veronica must choose between love and saving lives.’

It’s a welcoming one, one that could drive you to anxiety and anticipation.

Veronica’s Wish

Ugandans have told stories, we need more of them, We need to tell those stories when the battles are fought and won and lost, when lovers turn against their promises and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Java House Coffee , someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narratives and move the world. There’s magic in that. It’s in the people who watch, and for each and every visualization it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict.

The Ugandan Movie Industry needs to deeply sink minds in this. You may tell a story that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. VERONICA’S WISH hangs on that, it bares one that would move you and drive you and who knows what you might do because of it, because of the message it gives you. The serenity of the story gives you a mind blowing visual walk, one that would make your legs spongy for an ever longer walk.

Nisha Kalema the writer/Producer of this movie dips herself in thoughts and gives us a story that not only grabs our souls, but rather makes us feel more bit of life, gives us smiles with those love scenes, makes us cry with those sad moments, makes us believe in possibilities again, makes us fall in love and feel pinched. A story that would bring more other stories from personal experiences after the watch. She raises the voice of Wishes being possible manifestation of thoughts. Grabs our intention on this and makes her narrative simply known with fun around it.

The Beautiful Nisha Kalema Writer and Producer of Veronica’s Wish

VERONICA’S WISH grabs hearts of an amazing story, great team and an outstanding casting and joins them in a vintage Romeo and Juliet connection. A long list of absolutely amazing actors led my the Passionate Mushema Housen, Award-winning Nisha Kalema, the lovely Fashionista Malaika Nyanzi, the funny veteran Simon Base Kalema, Jayant Maru among other amazing acts. With an amazing performance, the cast give VERONICA’S WISH more life, they suit in it and boldly own their roles. The Character display is real and paints a colorful picture to the story to give it a better outside feel and bolds the message in it.

Directed by the Award Winning Nanfuka Rehema, known for her amazing performance on movies like The Pardon, Haunted Souls, Queen of Katwe, The Road We Travel among others, I must say she’s done it. Rehema undoubtedly does magic here, She carrys the story home, gives it comfort and did so much to create room for simplicity of the amazing story and you can feel this by the screenplay Veronica’s Wish gives us.

With a great Visual Quality and Coloring, VERONICA’S WISH is yet to be one of the best Ugandan Movies that have hit the industry with hard force, and set another pace to the industry in the quest to giving it the position it deserves. This amazing piece will be Premiered on 17th November at the Kampala Serena Hotel at a much anticipated Red Carpet Experience. Take time and buy your ticket and you will not regret.

How to Blend the African Fabric with fresh Urban Trends- Stigatown

Posted on Updated on

You will scratch your head over-time hearing statements about the richness that the African continent has. its only when you dig deep the hard hollow that you truly get to the base line of the uniqueness that we hold. Culture, Music, Norms, nature and many more. The trend of African wear has driven the sense of fashion to an everyday day fresh feel that keeps changing faces for a better look. The African Fabric is trendy, something that keeps getting better each day. But how is the best way to give it a more unique touch.

men fashionAYZC2535

what makes it more unique? is it its print patterns that have been disputed of late, is it the design and its transition that has also been too much westernized and eventually lost meaning? Here we go…

Today,  more vibrant colors, designs and prints are associated with African fashion. Yet, if one were to talk about strictly African wear or fabric, then probably only the bark cloth would make the cut, according to fashion blogger Samson Baranga.

African fashion, is therefore, how we blend and fuse the creative ideas inspired by our surroundings and cultures, given that Africa is a continent of 54 countries.

How to play around with the fabric, and make it match the current urban styles and give it a live touch of the current generation. Today, great fashion thinkers and trendsetters have mixed the African fabrics with urban dresses, t-shirts, party dresses and everything,. When i say everything, i mean they have gone as far as having African fabric headsets, bags, phone covers,  caftans, dress suitsplayful silhouettes, name it.

Clothing companies and brands like Gucci have experimented with their own interpretation of African fashion. Gucci did it with zebra prints in one of its design on the market.  The “kitenge” and other fabrics have taken over the fashion industry all over.

It is catching the eye of many celebrities ,brands and designers. It has been described as bold, fierce and vibrant with its prints, colour and elaborate accessories.

 

3fd0c152d8b6afb14c79c35f6fdf237255ca6f0dee9bd7f7c9aa9b4d6ee66496

 

Individual designers come up with concepts, cut their fabrics and designs and how they apply the said colour, tribal prints and accessories define the ‘Africanness’ in their designs.

“There is need to break down African fashion into different eras if we are to fully understand and appreciate it. If you look at contemporary African fashion, there is a lot of copying just like they [Europeans] are copying us. We look at what we like and we interpret it in our own kind of fabric that we have adopted. African fashion is African fashion, as long as it fits the African body,” . African wear is the destination, its our home and our place of comfort.

Getting inspiration from a variety of things that surround us, African fabric gives you freedom drop it anywhere, it still gives you a uniqueness you might love. Its that good. New ideas have made it vast and wide so as to widen its market through blending it with lots or urbanized designs.

The young generation of designers have used it to grow their fashion sense, its so rich to be limited to a thing. Go get a good fabric, crazily blend it to anything that comes to your mind and you will be blown away to the kind of looks and impressions it will give you.

Game Changing Dresses to give you a fun filled evening.

Posted on Updated on

Dress From Boujee Girls think they’re only allowed to wear dresses on formal occasions, but I like a woman who says, you know, I’m going over to see a boy who is having a nervous breakdown, a boy whose connection to the sense of sight itself is tenuous, and gosh dang it, I am going to wear a dress for him. That kind of craze mentality that sets the evening on fire. The dresses that give you a pillow-warmth feeling and sets you free for any kind of feeling.

Nothing exudes elegance like a floor-grazing mermaid gown with a little bit of volume and structure. And, a cocktail dress serving nothing but ‘extra’ glam. A dress that stands on its own, and won’t even need accessories to jazz it up is the real definition of a ‘game-changer’. So, as you search for a look that’ll elevate your eveningwear style, let your inspiration start here. Let’s just say that your search is over.

Glitz by Nalu’s and Boujee’s extensive collection of gowns and dresses with body-flattering silhouettes and dramatic details is all you need to elevate not just your evening wear style, but also your personal style. With a dress like this, all you’ll need is a nice pair of heels, perfect makeup, and hair, and you’re ready to go.

Kireka Boy Album. Ykee Benda tells his story, set for maiden Album listeners party.

Posted on Updated on

To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it and give life more meaning. That’s what our generation is about, you don’t do this, you are not worth our ears, we then listen to good music from the past generation.
With no doubt, Ykee Benda ‘the boy so tender, first on every girls Agenda’, like he rythms his name is one for our generation. Over time, he has made a mark feeding our souls with the kind of music we dance to, listen to, smile to, sing along to and dedicate to our ex’s, Crushes, lovers, landlords and whoever we want to hit on. 

The Graduated chemical engineer has recently been jaggling his creativity with efforts to do good music and to give his fans all they deserve with hits like Superman, Byonkola, Malaika, Muna Kampala, Farmer Remix, among others. 


Among these ballads of life and more, is what the Bold-Headed Mpaka Records Signed Artiste will give his fans at his much anticipated maiden ‘Album Listeners Party’ on 2nd December at Fame Lounge at only 20k Ordinary, 500k a table of 5 and 1.5M a Table of 8.
The ‘KIREKA BOY’ Album is what introduces us to Ykee Benda, his ability and what he can offer to us as far as the journey of Ugandan music.


“It’s kireka Boy because it’s me, it’s where I grew up, it’s more of my story, the album talks about my dream, my trip and my journey, the sequence of events of life”, the Superman say.
He adds, “The songs are on a trainot just as a musician but me as a young boy, an artiste, and it’s all about my personality. How I love fun, love God, this album is YKEE Benda, it’s a little bit of inspiration to me and the generation”.
He recently made his debut on the international scene with an amazing performance at the on-going Coke Studio Africa 2017 Series, his representation never disappointed. 
If you ever find that you’re the most talented person in the room, you need to find another room and Ykee seems to have found one, one to help him explore the genius in him.
You all should go at Fame Lounge on 2nd December for the KIREKA BOY Album Listeners Party. Check poster for details.

It all seemed like she was hitting at her haters who dusted her talent thinking it was all done.

The 2nd edition of the Magic Lens African Film Academy Awards recently took place at the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Conference Center and Suites, on a glamorous night as Nollywood actor, producer and director, Charles Awurum honoured distinguished personalities who have contributed immensely to the society. 


The 2017 Magic Lens Africa Film Academy Awards of Excellence aimed at honouring distinguished Africans that have contributed immensely to the progress of the movie industry in Africa.

Organized by Magic Lens Pictures Limited, It is a yearly event where Awardies come from all over Africa. A night of the stars.

This is great news in the fight to sell our talents to nations we want to share a piece of market with.

Congratulations Princess Faridah Ndausi Zalwango. Continue making us proud.
